When you think of yoga do you think of sitting cross-legged in a yoga studio chanting ‘om’ for 60 minutes? When I think of yoga, I think of sweating, intensity, breathing heavy, a toned-body and weight-loss!
There are many types of yoga and the style of yoga that I teach – POWER YOGA – in addition to other styles of yoga like Anusara, Vinyasa and Bikram (to name a few) can actually be quite a workout and get you in shape or help you mix-up your workout if you’ve reached a plateau.
In a Power Yoga Class, every class is a workout. A test of endurance for both the body and mind. Sweating is guaranteed; water is a necessity; and becoming stronger and leaner are natural results.
However, you don’t have to be a power yogi in order to achieve the benefits of yoga. And most specifically the weight-loss benefits of yoga. That’s right, yoga can help you to trim your waist line for a variety of reasons in a variety of different styled yoga classes.
